The Williams YMCA of Avery County

Light On After School


Join us for a county-wide celebration of after school program on Friday, November 8th from 5:00-8:00 PM at the Rock Gym in Newland. Launched in  2000, Lights On Afterschool is the only nationwide event celebrating afterschool programs and their important role in the lives of children, families and communities. The effort has become a hallmark of the afterschool movement and generates media coverage across the country each year.

Lights On Afterschool draws attention to the many ways afterschool programs support students by offering them opportunities to learn new things—such as science, community service, robotics, the arts and discover new skills. The events send a powerful message that millions more kids need quality afterschool programs.
